In Dhubri district's flood-ravaged and isolated char regions, the South Salmara Block Primary Health Centre (BPHC) (Dhubri-part), under the District Health Society Dhubri, exemplifies unwavering dedication by conducting medical relief camps via floating clinics.

 

These efforts ensure crucial healthcare services reach flood-affected communities, alleviating hardships in these remote areas.

 

The char regions, characterised by their unique geographical challenges, bear the brunt of floods with significant impact.

 

Despite facing adversities such as boat breakdowns, storms, and intense heatwaves, the medical teams persist in delivering essential healthcare support—a testament to their resilience and commitment during challenging times.

 

During the recent intense flooding, the South Salmara BPHC (Dhubri-part) orchestrated over 21 medical boat relief missions to remote shelters in the last five days.

 

Mostafizur Rahman, BPM South Salmara BPHC (Dhubri-Part), highlighted the initiative, involving 106 dedicated staff members out of the 326 engaged in healthcare services.

 

Teams comprising doctors, auxiliary nursing midwives (ANM), chemists, vaccinators, multipurpose workers (MPW), Ashas, community health officers, laboratory technicians, and surveillance workers utilised medical relief boats to reach multiple char area camps, ensuring vital medical assistance and supplies reached those in need.

 

Floods in the Brahmaputra River region pose immense challenges due to the river's vast expanse and high water volume, resembling an expansive ocean during floods.

 

Navigating such waters safely is daunting, yet critical for delivering medical aid promptly.

 

Despite these obstacles, healthcare teams remain steadfast, providing essential services amidst overwhelming demand.

 

Further medical boat relief camps are planned to manage and mitigate the crisis in char regions, aiming to prevent escalating health risks and ensuring effective flood response.
